A Pyramid or two...

Yesterday, Sunday January 16, Bob L. who belongs to the yahoo group posted a Pyramid card on his blog with the link to the directions! Thank you so much Bob for sharing your findings with us! You can find Bob's blog here...

As you know I love new stuff - who doesn't? Even though I was busy working on a card (which I'm not liking so well and will have to play around with it a bunch)I pushed it all aside and decided to try my hand at this new shape! It was so easy! And wouldn't you know, it works so well with the new Mini's from Magnolia-licious! Both of these images are available from Diana and work perfectly. I didn't stray away very much from just a basic card, but you could really get creative on these. Also, if you fold them in half they slide perfectly into an invitation sized envelope!

So here are the cards I made....

Some close up detail on each image...

#368 Tilda with a Bike...

#399 So Spooky Tilda...

Here is the card laid flat...

All the paper and card stock are from my stash so I have no earthly idea what they are called. I didn't keep track of my Copics either, but I'm trying out Zoe's coloring techniques. I have a long way to go but I'm going to keep working at it. You can see Zoe's fabulous work here...Make it Crafty

These will be off to CHA on January 28th. I'm so excited about going. Only 11 more sleeps until I get to meet the awesome Scor-Pal and Magnolia team! Wooohoooo!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you like what I did with my Pyramid cards.
